SPEAKING

For Speaking Inquiries:

I like to speak about mental health, mindfulness, women’s issues, and technology as it impacts the human experience. If you’d like to have me speak at your conference or event, please send an email to info@lesliecarr.com, or call us at (415) 932-0938.

Here’s what a past speech organizer has to say about me:

“Dr. Carr was a pleasure to work with. She was an absolute professional, and her message was well articulated: human connection really matters, and we can set ourselves up for success by minimizing distractions so that we can have the most fulfilling relationships possible.

She captivated the audience with her own personal stories, combined with sharing the research behind how humans connect and interact on a psychological level. She did a great job helping us understand how to be more engaged and mindful in all our relationships. Thank you, Leslie!”

-Rachael O’Meara, one of the curators of Google’s G-Pause speaker series, which is designed to educate, inform, and inspire on the subject of mindfulness; she’s also the author of the upcoming book Pause.
